As more than just the new Duchess of Sussex and wife to Prince Harry, Meghan Markle is an outstanding role model and fashion icon in her own right. This Halloween season, channel your inner modern, feminist princess by re-creating some of Markle’s most famous outfits. From trench coats to fascinators, the best part is that most of these items can become staple closet items even after Halloween is over.

One of Markle’s most recognizable outfits is the ensemble she wore at Wimbledon this past summer. Consisting of a simple striped top with high-waisted white trousers, it’s a look that’s classic and elegant with a touch of flair. We recommend H&M's Cotton Shirt ($12.99) and Lyocell-Blend Pants ($49.99) as your best bet for a classy and comfortable outfit. You also need a statement hat to bring back memories of the summer – Madewell's Packable Mesa Straw Hat ($38) looks just like Markle's! After Halloween, you can even mix and match these items to create a new look that’s perfect for fall weather. Add a scarf, sweater or a pair of boots and you’ll be good to go.

Though fancier than her Wimbledon outfit, this look is still easy to recreate for yourself. Pair any white shirtdress, or any plain white dress really (a comfy option is Zara's Shirt Dress with Lace Inserts ($49.90)), with a black belt and eye-catching fascinator and people will have a difficult time telling the difference between you and the Duchess! For specific hat and fascinator inspo, peruse pictures from the Royal Ascot or Kentucky Derby. One quick option is the ASOS Simple Hair Fascinator Headband ($16).

In a breach of tradition, Markle wore a stunning, partially sheer mesh dress for her engagement photos with Prince Harry. This is a fabulous outfit to recreate, and it's one you can have a lot of creativity with, too! All you need to look as stunning as the Duchess is any long, black maxi skirt, like Forever 21's Pleated Maxi Skirt ($24.90), and an embellished mesh top or bodysuit, like Shein's Glitter Mock Neck Bodysuit ($14). To finish off the outfit, find a cheap engagement-looking ring that even the most eagle-eyed party-goers won't be able to tell is fake. Target has plenty of good options, including this Cubic Zirconia Engagement Ring in Silver ($16.99). Have fun recreating Markle's iconic engagement pose with all your friends. And who knows, maybe you'll meet your own prince charming along the way.

The first step in creating this look is a pure white dress that’s elegant enough to reflect Markle’s style, while still giving you enough room to party all night long. Look for one with a sculpted waist, high neck and long sleeves, but keep it casual by sticking with a short hem (full-length dresses are not idea for partying). We found Nordstrom's Bell Sleeve Sheath Dress ($59.97) to be a perfect fit.

The next step is the hunt for accessories, specifically for a tulle veil that's reminiscent of Markle's, like Icing's Penelope Veil ($14.99), and a stunning pair of shoes. Be sure to find a tiara that makes it clear which famous bride you are–Claire’s has plenty of choices, including their Crystal & Pearl Flower Tiara ($19.99)–and don’t forget the bouquet!

While not related to her new princess status, Markle’s role as Rachel Zane on Suits is her most recognizable acting role. To dress just like Rachel, go old-school with a pencil skirt and a stylish (but still professional) blouse. Try H&M's Jersey Pencil Skirt in black ($17.99) and Crêped Blouse ($29.99) to create this costume. 

Now that you've got your costume set, all you need to do is find that special someone to play your Prince Harry!
